About

Welcome! I’m Laura- a social worker (MSW) and holistic health counselor.  I’m also a RRCA certified running coach and part time spin instructor. I love running, fitness, healthy holistic living, music, family time and experimenting in the kitchen.

“Mommy, run fast!” is one of my daughter’s favorite phrases from the seat of the stroller! This blog is a compilation of my training, healthy living and running tips, and a few family recipes along the way.

I’m Laura- a mom, Holistic Health Coach, social worker (MSW), spin instructor, and RRCA certified Running Coach.  I received my health coach training from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, where I was trained in more than one hundred dietary theories and studied a variety of practical lifestyle coaching methods. I can help you create a personalized “roadmap to health” that suits your unique body, lifestyle, preferences, and goals.

I’ve always been interested in nutrition, and became a vegetarian in college for health reasons.  However, I soon discovered that despite it being a healthy choice for many individuals (and for the environment) my body eventually gave me signs that it was not the best choice for me.

As I did more research, I became to understand and apprecitate the concept of bio-individuality.  What works for one person will not necessarily work for the next. And I gradually learned how to listen to my body and determine what to eat to have more energy, eliminate the bloating and mental fogginess, and feel good!

I love helping women determine the best diet for them through a variety of personal factors.

Some of my specific health interests include: battling the sweet tooth and understanding our cravings, eating for energy, making the connection between lifestyle stress and our health, improved sleep, and the best foods for athletes, particularly runners.

I am also a certified running coach and can help develop a running and fitness plan to meet your goals, whether you would like to run your first 5k or shave time off a marathon. You can find out more about my running coach services here.
